FraserView School Antennas Removed – Feb 1999

http://www.wave-guide.org/news/coneofsilence.html

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Fifth Estate Program, from the February 9, 1999 segment entitled “Cone of Silence.”

…The cellular company approached the school board and what they made an arrangement to do was to put transmitters and receivers on top of this 85-year-old school in exchange for annual rent.

MALAREK: How much money are we talking here?

BOWLING: Well, I’m not sure exactly – they keep that confidential – but I believe it’s around $9,000 or $10,000 a year.

MALAREK: Milt wanted to know if the darn things were safe or not, and to his surprise, he couldn’t get a straight answer from anyone.

BOWLING: My concern I guess is worst-case. If the best scientists in the world can’t agree that it’s safe, who is anybody else to say that it is?

MALAREK: So Milt mobilized the neighborhood and eventually got the school board on side. There would be no antenna on this school.

Maple Ridge BC – Cancer Cluster

10 Teachers at Canadian School surrounded by 3 Towers

9 teachers and 2 students that have been diagnosed with cancer while working or attending Riverside..   The most recent death due to cancer was last week; one of the teachers there developed brain cancer.  She appeared to be fine in November (2007), but now the school and the teachers family is mourning the loss..

Cancer cluster hits school

B.C. Cancer Agency will study a cluster of cancer diagnoses — 10 teachers over several years — at Riverside elementary in the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district.

BY THE VANCOUVER SUN JANUARY 8, 2008

MAPLE RIDGE – The B.C. Cancer Agency will study a cluster of cancer diagnoses — 10 teachers over several years — at Riverside elementary in the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district.

“We think that’s a fairly high number compared to the general population,” said district teachers’ union president Drusilla Wilson.

The school board’s occupational health and safety officer, Judy Dueck, said a “whole bunch of variables” need to be looked at to determine whether this is a cancer cluster or just a coincidence.

“We’re prepared to carry through because the anxiety levels are high,” Dueck said.

The study will be led by the B.C. Cancer Agency, and Dueck is starting to collect data for it, starting with a staff survey at Riverside.

The latest cancer victim from Riverside died on Jan. 2 of brain cancer. However, all her colleagues who have been diagnosed have recovered. The cancer types have ranged from breast cancer, throat and larynx cancer, to leukemia, according to Wilson.

After 2 Ripon Children Diagnosed with Cancer, Kids and Parents Protest Cell Tower on School Grounds

californiaschool

POSTED 4:46 PM, MAY 31, 2017  BY , UPDATED AT 04:33PM, MAY 31, 2017

RIPON CALIFORNIA  – In a colorful protest, about two dozen Weston Elementary school kids in Ripon skipped class on Wednesday and demanded that the Ripon Unified School District remove what they believe is a cancer causing agent.

“Take down that cell tower,” Kyle Prime, a cancer survivor, said.

“Having a cell phone tower on a school ground, it’s… in 2011 it was classified as a known carcinogen so that tells me that it shouldn’t be around our children,” Prime’s mother, Kellie, told FOX40.

Kyle, 11, was diagnosed with cancer last year.

“I had a Wilms’ tumor in my left kidney,” Kyle said.

Another parent, Monica Ferrulli said her 10-year-old son, Mason, was diagnosed six months later.

I had brain cancer,” Mason said.

Both mothers said it was devastating to learn of their sons’ diagnoses. They believe the radiation from the communications tower, which was installed in 2009 on the school’s campus, may be the reason their sons got sick.

“It’s there. It’s very, very close to the buildings. The kids are there, six, seven hours a day,” Prime said.

The American Cancer Society said there is very little evidence that these towers cause cancer. Even so, Ferrulli said she has demanded answers from the school district only to remain in the dark.

“They don’t know when it’s tested, what the last radiation levels that were tested. How often it’s tested,” Ferrulli said.

We’ve called, emailed the school board and even showed up to the superintendent’s office but administrators told us she wasn’t available. No one would comment. Now, both boys are cancer free but their parents, who are fighting to keep it that way, said they might have to transfer their kids to a different school for their health.

“At this point we just have to eliminate any possible factors that could cause it to come back,” Ferrulli said.

Campus Building Blamed for Cancer Cluster

BY TARA PARKER-POPE

Joseph Ho/Guardian – Protesters at the University of California, San Diego, are lobbying school administrators to address a “cancer cluster” linked to a campus building.

A building on the University of California, San Diego, campus is being blamed for a cluster of breast cancer cases, raising new questions about the risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields.

Last week, students and professors marched and carried signs to protest what they called a “crisis of safety,” claiming that the university has failed to address worries that the campus literature building is the site of an inordinate number of cancer cases. The protesters delivered a petition signed by more than 1,300 people to the university chancellor, Marye Anne Fox, according to a report in the university’s newspaper, The Guardian.

At least eight workers in the campus building have been diagnosed with breast cancer since 2000, and a handful of other cancers, including ovarian and salivary gland cancers, have also been reported. The number of breast cancer cases alone is significantly more than would have been expected by chance, according to a June analysis by Cedric Garland, an epidemiologist at the university. In that report, he notes that the risk of invasive breast cancer for employees in the literature building appears to be four to five times higher than that of the general California population. To read the full report, click here.

Building workers and researchers are concerned the source of the problem may be the building’s elevators, which rest on the first floor and emit an electromagnetic field. According to the report from Dr. Garland:

The issue of the etiological role of EMF in breast cancer is still not resolved with final scientific certainty, despite decades of research. However, the lack of such certainty should not be a reason to avoid taking moderate measures to minimize needless exposure of workers to power frequency EMF.

According to The Guardian, the University “has vacated areas with risk of exposure to high EMF levels” and replaced elevator motor devices and other fixtures to reduce generation of electromagnetic fields. A University of California, Los Angeles, researcher, Leeka Kheifets, has been asked to continue the investigation, although critics are wary of her ties to the Electric
Power Research Institute, an arm of the electric utility industry, according to a report in Microwave News.

The university has created a Web site where it summarizes the literature building study as well as the interim safety measures it has taken, as well as links to scientific literature on electromagnetic fields and cancer. Click here to see the site.

In 2003, scientists reported that they found no link between a much publicized breast cancer cluster on Long Island and exposure to electromagnetic fields.

Letters: Shady Side cellphone tower puts money over community’s interests

Annapolis, MD

Cellphone tower

As a resident of Shady Side, a teacher and the mother of six school-aged children, I oppose the decision to erect a cellphone tower on the Shady Side Elementary School grounds. This tower favors a small financial gain for the school system over the best interest of the community.

I live next to the school and am concerned about my family’s health. Supporters of the tower have obviously not read current studies finding radio frequency, or RF, radiation to be a probable carcinogen.

Current U.S. safety standards were created in 1996, before we had smartphones and towers everywhere. I look to current, global, peer-reviewed studies to inform my beliefs, and so should the school board. There is more than sufficient science to show a direct correlation between RF radiation and many diseases and health issues.

Even Verizon’s website says there is no proof RF radiation is absolutely safe. Just this year the American Cancer Society published on its website that the U.S. National Toxicology Program has found exposure to RF radiation linked to a higher risk of two cancers.

We are so addicted to our devices that we are failing to remember our children need us to protect them, not provide them with better cell coverage at the cost of their health.

The supporters’ argument is about connecting to devices and safety. Any device can be connected to WiFi and I suggest using a land line. Verizon coverage in Shady Side is already good, according to Verizon’s coverage maps.

Supporters argue that cellphones and microwaves are more dangerous than towers. Unlike towers, you can choose to turn them off. With this tower, parents would have no choice but to expose their children to RF radiation every single day. This would be government-mandated radiation for our children.

Our say: Some cell tower disputes may not be worth it for schools

My Son Died

http://rense.com/general95/sonsmartg.html

I lost my beautiful, 29-year-old son Rich to glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain cancer on October 11, 2008.

Early in 2008, Rich was working as a teaching assistant in Political Science at San Diego State University (SDSU), where he had received his master’s degree.  He was a very kind young man who would occasionally go golfing with the professors.

He was in the process of applying for law school, but had confided to me, “I don’t know that I can make it through law school because I can’t remember things.”  He was having headaches, memory problems, nosebleeds and excessive sweating and fatigue.  I had been noticing that something was off with him. He needed to sleep all the time. There was a blood vessel coming from the right side of his head through his hairline and protruding across this forehead. His girlfriend Jennifer told me he would sleep for hours, curled up like a cat during the day by the patio window. This was not like him.

At the time of Rich’s GBM diagnosis in March 2008, Dr. V. Tantuwaya from Poway, CA told us that his cell phone was the culprit.  Rich’s tumor was located in his right frontal lobe and he was right-handed.  This is referred to as an ipsilateral tumor, one on the same side as where the phone was held.

Rich wanted to live. He had always been a good kid, never drank or did drugs. At 6’2”, he’d been on varsity basketball in high school, and was very healthy. So cancer was unthinkable. I told Rich I’d do anything to keep him alive. But after surgery, chemo and radiation, with nine MRIs, multiple hospitals and hospice, he died, seven months following diagnosis.

I learned that similar brain cancers were happening to others on campus.  An English teacher, Laurel Amtower, thanked SDSU colleagues for their support before she went through chemo and radiation.  She died, too, leaving a 12-year-old daughter.  She didn’t realize that some she thanked were probably partly responsible for her death.

On August 7, 2009, nine months after Rich’s death, I found articles and a video about a “Brain Cancer Cluster on the San Diego State University Campus.”  I read these (listed below) several times before ending up on the floor. I contacted the SDSU Administration, but was bounced around from one person to another. I then drove to San Diego and stayed the whole month of October 2009.  I met off-campus with some professors mentioned in the articles. They told me they had asked for a toxicology study, as there is a huge cell tower right next to the building where Rich spent most of his time grading papers and doing research: Nasatir Hall.

After I returned home, the SDSU Administration sent me an epidemiological report written by a Dr. Thomas Mack.  In the third paragraph, Dr. Mack stated he has, “no known knowledge of any chemical or radiation concerns and therefore there are none.”   That’s not a scientific conclusion, it’s a cover-up.

I e-mailed Dr. Mack, and he called me at home!  I asked him about this cell tower on top of the Communications Building. This rises over Nasatir Hall, where most of the brain cancer victims were located. Dr. Mack quickly denied the connection to the cancer cluster.  I then told him of everyone’s concerns. He said, “They should be concerned.”  This made me furious. It didn’t make any sense. And the SDSU Administration would not conduct a toxicology study because of Dr. Mack’s report!  Like some professors, I have requested a study on several occasions, but have received no response.

I then looked into the tower on my own.  Owned by Sprint, it has HPWREN or High Performance Wireless Research and Educational Network on it, with a BackBone Node to the UC-SD Supercomputer Center.  It also has a GWEN, or Ground Wave Emergency Network, with emissions known to hug the ground.  These towers are capable of sending signals hundreds of miles, including to several remote laboratories across California.  There is an additional tower on campus on the KPBS News Station.  Similar towers are on many college campuses across the US, via the Lambda or Tera Grid, also called the ‘smart’ grid.  Engineers are developing “smart”, or “AMI” meters, appliances and whatever else they can dream up to deploy microwave radiation everywhere. This grid is the “military-industrial complex” of which President Dwight Eisenhower warned US citizens of in his 1961 Farewell Speech.  He warned of its grave consequences.  I know of these consequences.

After Laurel Amtower died of brain cancer on August 29, 2010, I contacted NBC in San Diego.  At first, Producer Paul Krueger was interested in doing another story.  After I gave him this new information, SILENCE.

I then contacted the San Diego Tribune.  A reporter called me at home.  He told me that this story would NEVER get out in San Diego.  I asked, “Why?” He said, “Because of money.”  I also contacted the CA Governor’s office and area Representative Marti Emerald.  Both referred me back to SDSU.

For a month in October 2011, I stood hours each day outside the campus cafeteria, where the kids would congregate and walk to get to their classes.  I had about 15 signs taped up against the wall.  One said, “Will you be the next victim?”  Others said, “Read your cell phone manuals. They say not to hold the phone to your head. Don’t keep it in your pocket. It will do genetic damage.”  Others warned about wi-fi and more.

They looked frightened, but they would still grab their cell phones. They would text while walking and ignore everything around them. Some would take pictures, or would peek out of the side of their eyes.  A few talked with me.

While there, I walked to Nasatir Hall. Kids were sitting all around. The leaves were dying on the trees. Measurements on an RF meter were beyond the range of the meter.  Some kids were high up on outdoor balconies at their dorms, near the levels of the massive discs and antennas on the towers.

When I went directly to Room 131, where Rich and others who died of cancer had worked, I found it all closed up.  A policeman asked me what I was doing there. I told him about my son. He asked me about the towers and told me he has two young children.

The known SDSU brain cancer victims are listed below. In addition to the brain cancers there are also breast cancers in the vicinity. The professors are afraid for both their health and their jobs.  I’ve told the SDSU Administration, “I’m not going away!”

Devon primary school to walk-out over phone mast and fears of ‘excessive radiation’

Dartington Primary School want the mast moved at least 1km away

By Jamie Hawkins   14:00, 25 JUN 2018

Chloe and her two children stood next to the controversial phone mast

Parents and students at a Devon primary school are planning a mass walk-out in protest of a controversial mobile phone mast.

The 10m high structure is located just 50 metres away from Dartington Primary School, Totnes, which has worried parents over suggested radiation readings at the school which apparently show the highest reading of ‘excessive radiation.’

 

Those involved in the protest want the mast located at least 1km away from the school, as well as the outdoor pool, a children’s playground and a school for children with additional needs that fall within a 100m radius of the Vodafone mast.

 

Chloe and her two children stood next to the controversial phone mast

Some have claimed these masts emit levels of electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) and radiation that can lead to significant health issues.

Dr David Carpenter, Professor of Environmental Health Sciences at the University of Albany, USA said:

“Children are more vulnerable to RF/MW radiation because of the susceptibility of their developing nervous systems.

“Children are largely unable to remove themselves from exposures to harmful substances in their environments. Their exposure is involuntary.

“There is a major legal difference between an exposure that an individual chooses to accept and one that is forced upon a person, especially a dependent, who can do nothing about it.”

Michelle McHale, Director of Attachment Parenting UK whose girls attended Dartington Primary said she is astonished at the lack of precaution or care in siting the mast.

Locals agree that young children’s health is absolutely paramount. Mum Natascha, whose son has additional needs and has been thriving at Dartington Primary commented:

“We love our school and we agree with technological development but the mast’s closeness casts a dark shadow over our newly built school and many parents are seriously considering de-registering which could create a real conundrum for the council who own the small roadside verge where the mast is erected.”

 

 

Mum of one, Leela, feels strongly that the mast needs to be located at a distance to both amenities and housing and that extensive consultation was sorely missing. Leela commented;

“Why would we risk subjecting our children to consistent radiation while other European Countries adhere to the EU’s ‘precautionary principle’ when it comes to EMFs?

“I can see how phone companies could shatter our confidence in the safety of where we live by placing a 10m mast with permitted planning rights alongside a home or school and we have zero rights to appeal our involuntary radiation exposure. What does that mean for our human rights?”

Vodafone originally applied to South Hams District Council for the erection of a 15m mast, but this planning application was rejected amidst local opposition to the mast.

Since then, Vodafone has appealed to the Secretary of State to have the local council’s decision revoked.

The 10m mast was erected during the May half-term break.

The parent-led walk-out will take place at 1.30pm on Tuesday, June 26. The school’s head teacher, Mrs Mahon, objects to the mast’s proximity and school governors are working on the school’s behalf to oppose the current location.

More than 620 have signed a petition to have the mast moved.
